The Breeze Difference - Our Story
I am so proud to say happy first anniversary to Breeze Day Spa at Agapanthus. This July was a great time to take a look back at an incredible year, plan for the future, and do a little celebrating with our oh-so-breezy-and-beautiful clientele.
In the Fall of 2017 I was finalizing plans for the move of Agapanthus boutique to our new space in historic downtown Ocala that was under complete renovation. With more space than I wanted for retail, at the suggestion of a friend I decided to add a beauty concept. Anything embedded within our shop had to be something new and fresh for our wonderful customers, something that fit in with the Agapanthus mantra of “Beauty. Every day.” My daughter-in-law suggested the name that became the guiding principle— Breeze. How perfect! When you feel a breeze you say “ahhhh,” every time!
With blow-out salons all the rage, and my own constant search for a cleaner nail environment, I knew what I wanted to do. But it was going to take the talent from someone in the beauty industry to help me get there. This is when I was introduced to Heather LeBoeuf Sumner.
When I met Heather she was on a journey of her own. Newly married, and very well established as a hairstylist, Heather was known for her amazing execution of the latest looks and trends. She was also looking for a change in direction of her career. Excited about the concept, she agreed to join me as a consultant and take the lead as Spa Manager at Breeze. Together we established Ocala’s first true blow out salon (no cutting or coloring – just styling), with healthier nail services, make-up, esthetician services, using clean and natural plant-based products. The Breeze client experience should be effortless, clean, healthy, and above all, one of beauty— not just the results but in the Breeze environment itself. It’s something we work toward every day.
The journey of the past year has been filled with challenges and learning, and has seen some outstanding work in the full range of every day looks to bridal to session styling, all to glowing client reviews!
I’m so grateful for Heather and the team she leads for their positive attitude, tons of hard work, belief in the concept, and the amazing talent they share with our lovely clientele. After a year, I can definitely feel the breeze!
